Protecting these open space areas and the wildlife within is one of our highest priorities.
The open spaces protected by the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) are like a time machine to bygone days, when ranchers, farmers, cattle and the occasional mountain lion populated Orange County. To balance construction of The Toll Roads, TCA has preserved 17 different Orange County open spaces in perpetuity -- many of which are home to the federally protected songbird, the California gnatcatcher.
Protecting these open space areas and the wildlife within is one of our highest priorities. For this reason, many of TCA’s mitigation sites have limited public access; however, you can learn more about each site and view photos below.
